What if I just left that ankle spur where it is?

Posted by Amy on 3/04/01 at 13:52 (040417)

Hi, it's me again the inside ankle spur patient post EPF surgery 4 months ago and after 1 scarrrry cortisone injection, still no relief. Had a pretty much pain-free day yesterday, only because I laid around the house all day. Today, the pain is back for no paticular reason. What would happen if I didn't have ankle spur removal surgery? Could anything worse happen to the posterior tibial nerve?

If the spur is the direct reason for the problem with the posterior nerve then you can and will cause more damage to the TTS if no treatment is rendered
